The first stills from J.K. Rowling’s upcoming Harry Potter prequel Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them have been released. This installment in the “Harry Potter” Universe takes place some 70 prior to the events of “Harry Potter and Sorcerer’s Stone” and chronicles the adventures of Newt Scamander, fictional author of the book which is the film’s namesake. Uniquelly, this story will take place in New York City, U.S.A instead of England and will be the first look at the American Wizarding World. The film is directed by David Yates, who also directed the last four “Harry Potter” films, and stars Eddie Redmayne (Les Misérables, Jupiter Ascending), Collin Farrell (Total Recall, In Bruges), and Katherine Waterston (Inherent Vice, Steve Jobs).
